    EZM13

    Hi all,

    Just received my new Sinn, a quick question, the chronograph buttons take a bit of force to operate, they depress and then make quite a click before they activate, is that usual? Not owned a Sinn or chronograph before?

    Thanks all.

    Yes, I believe thatís normal. I had a Sinn 103 previously and found the pushers to require more force to operate than, say, an ST19 chrono.

    Many thanks, Iím guessing itís something to do with waterproofing.

    Thought the Chrono was broken as I pushed the buttons many times, then pushed harder and it made a pronounced click and the started.

    Yes thatís normal.
    The longer you have it, the more you will come to like the way the chrono is designed to work. One of the best watches if you ask me, perfect for all around wear.

    Congrats on your ezm13. Thatís a very rare find. Very few would let go of theirs.

    One of the cool things about the EZM13 is the chronograph pushers can be safely used down to 200M, thanks to the method by which Sinn installs and seals them ("Crown and chronograph pushers are sealed and protected by a specific material used in chemical vacuum technology." from Watchbuys.), and you're pushing against a fairly stout spring.

    It's the same system as is used on the U1000. The pushers on that can be used down to the full 1000M to which the watch is rated, using some very stout springs. The idea is the pushers have to reset under pressure and need a strong enough spring behind them to do it.

    Sinn made the EZM13's pushers easier to operate that the U1000 by using a lighter spring, hence the 200M limit, but they're still firm. Beyond 200m they won't leak, they'll just stay depressed until come back up from the abyss.

    Many thanks, the buttons a quite springy but that doesnít start the chronograph until you give it that extra push and it almost double clicks to start but is easier to pause and reset but still has a substantial click.

    Seems like the first click doesnít start it, almost needs 2 clicks to start, pretty confused

    Was a bit disconcerting as itís such a mechanical click, certainly couldnít operate it by accident!

    Just not used to it I guess, thanks for the info

    Re: EZM13

    Hi all,

    Further to my initial post I addressed the issue with Sinn as it appears my Chrono at times requires 2 clicks to start unless I push really hard to overcome both clicks.

    Can anyone with one confirm if this is the same with theirs when initially starting the Chrono as Iím not getting much luck with Sinn.

    Many thanks and sorry for the trouble.
